Originally written September 16, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
Seattle Seahawks Pro-Bowl left tackle Russell Okung left Sunday night’s divisional game against the San Francisco 49ers’ with an apparent foot injury, according to ESPN.com's Terry Blount. The injury occurred in the first half and was reported during the game by the Sunday Night Football crew as a possible toe injury. The Seahawks organization has yet to comment on the seriousness of the injury, but Okung was seen standing on the sideline during the second half after the injury. Unfortunately for Seattle, he was unable to return to the game though. In all likelihood, if the injury to Okung was serious, they probably wouldn’t have allowed him to stand on the sidelines in his pads for the remainder of the game. Not with a foot injury and certainly not a 300+ pound man who has a history of foot injuries. So it seems Okung—and the Seahawks for that matter—may have dodged a bullet on this one. Fans should probably still hold their breath until official word comes from the organization though. After all, Paul McQuistan may have given 110% sliding over to left tackle for the injured Pro-Bowler, but he struggled mightily against the 49ers’ pass rush and often needed help on his side from running backs and tight ends. Surely Seattle would rather not rely on him to protect Russell Wilson’s blind side for too long.   Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
